Two Bell UH-1H Iroquois were leased from the Greek Army from March 2001 as a stop-gap pending the arrival of up to 7 new transport helicopters expected before 2005. In 2004 a further 2 examples were leased, (plus a single Italian-built AB205). They appear to have been returned to Greece in late 2005.
The Bell UH-1H is a medium-weight utility helicopter designed in the Vietnam war-era to transport up to 15 troops onto the battlefield while carrying self-defensive weapons on mounted pylons.
The Bell UH-1Hs leased from the Greek Army were later grounded after major threats of sanctions by the US, and were returned before a replacement arrived.
